‘X’ parks your bot on the award-winning PK22 Easy Chair – the cross-shape on the leather seat and back panel helps make this piece a true designer classic. The PK22 is a chair of such high designer standing (or sitting), that it’s displayed in art museums around the world. And it’s easy to understand why – this classy classic has everything the perfect piece of designer furniture requires: first-class form, superior function and beautiful, flowing lines.

The PK22 Easy Chair adds instant designer pedigree and functional comfort to all environments and is easy all round – easy to move, easy to move and very easy on the eye. Not only that, but the PK22 is one of the most versatile designer classics around. Its simple, crisp curves will enhance any room of the home, style up the drabbest of offices and provide designer relaxation space in the studio.

Epitomising Kjaerholm’s superior use of ‘masculine’, minimalist materials such as leather and polished metal, the PK22 Easy Chair is a triumph of artistic form, but also incredibly hard-wearing. Its comfortable contours are curved for ultimate ergonomic pleasure and durably made to ensure a lifetime of use. An inspiration for countless 21st century designers, the elegance and simplicity of the coveted PK22 Easy Chair has arguably never been bettered.

If you buy one piece of designer furniture, make it the award-winning PK22 chair. Part of the internationally renowned ‘Kjaerholm Collection’, the PK22 was one of multi-award winning designer, Poul Kjaerholm’s, very first commercial creations. In fact, it was based on the PK25 Element Chair, which Kjaerholm created as part of his graduation project at the School of Applied Art in Copenhagen.

After proving his ‘metal’ with the PK25’s innovative steel frame, Kjaerholm went on to create the PK22 Easy Chair – an upmarket version of the PK25 finished in glorious leather and boasting quirky designer curves. The PK22 Easy Chair was awarded the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennale, the world’s premium design fair, in 1957 – just one year after its celebrated designer graduated from design school.

As one of Kjaerholm’s earliest designs, the PK22 truly shows his natural talent and affinity with the ideals and materials of the 20th century modernist movement. The PK22 took the student to master status, with design improvements on the PK25 that afforded more economical production and added the innovative use of leather to its highly polished frame. As a result, the revolutionary PK22 Easy Chair was an immediate commercial success during its 1956 debut and has been purchased for stylish homes around the world ever since.

Not surprisingly, Kjaerholm became an instant designer name after the release of the PK22 and his pedigree continued to grow during his lifetime and beyond. His many designs live in stylish venues around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the V&A in London. However, it was his first experimentations with cantilever construction, as we see on the PK22, that really showed the world the innovation and vision Kjaerholm was capable of.

Designers all over the world continue to be inspired by the simplicity and floating elegance of the PK22 Easy Chair. One look at this relaxed work of art sparks the creative imagination and artistic flow – no wonder the young Kjaerholm was so much in demand after creating this functional piece of PK perfection.
